The 2016 edition of the annual Mountain Workshops, a 41-year internationally recognized collection of simultaneous photojournalism, video storytelling, picture editing, data visualization and time-lapse
workshops, will be held October 18-22 in Paducah, Ky. Held each year in towns throughout Kentucky, the workshops cover a gamut of skills that enable photographers to better tell stories about the
surrounding community while learning from professional visual storytellers, many of them recognized as some of the best contemporary journalists of our time.

About 150 participants, faculty and staff will converge on the western Kentucky river town to produce documentary shorts, still images, visual graphics and time-lapse photography that will be presented in a
book, website and traveling gallery. The application process is portfolio driven and all participants must present a portfolio of work to be considered for admission to the workshop.
